FREEDIVE NATIONAL RECORD
In 2016 Aïa Mar set two Freedive National Records for Panama. Submerging on one breath allows her to push personal limits in order to truly connect with the Ocean. In her life she has seen the rapid decline of Marine Biodiversity and her mission is to protect the Ocean's Future.
Born in Panama, a country with two oceans, Aïa is always exploring the water. She began diving at age 16 and is constantly traveling around the world experiencing the marine habitats of the Red Sea, Mediterranean, South Pacific, Caribbean & Pacific Ocean.
Through her art she creates awareness to protect unique ecosystems, species biodiversity and healthy habitats.
Aïa's passion for nature conservation has led to collaborate with several environmental foundations: Smithsonian, United Nations, MarViva, Tortuguias, IUCN, PEW Foundation.
Her work caring for biodiversity,
sustainable fishing, coral health, sharks, pristine ecosystems and pure elements allows her to give back to our Beautiful Planet Earth.
